Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 202007

Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Caravan. While driving 30 mph, the contact heard a roaring noise coming from the rear end. However, the noise ceased while driving 70 mph. The mechanic stated that the rear wheel axle assemblies were dry and failed on both sides of the vehicle. The rear axle assemblies were replaced, however, the roaring noise was still present. The axle assemblies were replaced a second time and the noise was no longer heard. The failure mileage was 82,000 and current mileage was 93,000. *updated 12/12/07 the mechanic determined the left rear wheel assembly had failed because it was dry and had no grease. The right side was also replaced and the roar noise has since disappeared.
